  • Trent 900 Mystery Component
    Posted by Lee Ann Tegtmeier 2:55 PM on Nov 12, 2010

    Rolls-Royce disclosed that the Trent 900 failure on the Qantas A380 Nov. 8 was limited to "a specific component in the turbine area of the engine." No word on what that component is. 

    However, the failed component "caused an oil fire, which led to the release of the intermediate pressure turbine disk."

    Max Kingsley-Jones filed this story on the Trent 900 analysis today.
